Tim Tebow Gave an Emotional Speech to Congress Advocating for Child Sex Abuse Victims

Tim Tebow advocated for victims of child sex abuse in an emotional and passionate speech in front of the House Judiciary Subcommittee.

Tebow was part of a panel at the “Voice for the Voiceless” hearing on Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill. The former football star opened up his statement by explaining the work the Tim Tebow Foundation does with children in need around the world.

“[The Tim Tebow Foundation] exists to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need,” Tebow said. “To sum it up, we strive to fight for people who can’t fight for themselves.”

He then called on lawmakers to pass a bill that would create a “rescue team” to protect thousands of children who are victims of sexual abuse around the world. Tebow said that this team needed to not only have adequate manpower but also the necessary funding, resources and technology to rescue and protect vulnerable children.

“I’ve had the privilege to play for a lot of sports in my life, and almost all of them we’ve had incredible resources to give us a better chance at winning a game. Something that ultimately — as much as we care about it — doesn’t matter,” he said. “Why would we not give as much, if not more, resources to the frontline heroes that are going after the most vulnerable boys and girls on the planet?”

Tebow later shared his full speech on X saying that he was grateful for the opportunity to speak and advocate for children facing injustice around the world.
